Summary The thesis identified how advanced high strength steels perform compared to conventional steels in terms of weight reduction and crash performance for automotive bodies. The novel production method of low pressure tube hydroforming was applied to form these advanced steels to reduce the press tonnage and fluid pressure compared to the conventional high pressure process. In addition analytical models were developed to predict the force and pressure in the low pressure process.
